Manchester United: Eric Bailly undermines Harry Maguire on Instagram

Bailly United, Six Sports

Eric Bailly has undermined Manchester United captain Harry Maguire on Instagram. Maguire has been in terrible form since the start of the season. As the captain, Maguire was the first choice center back despite being woeful.

On a recent Instagram post by the official Manchester United handle, A user commented “Start Eric Bailly x Varane” to which Bailly replied with “Please” followed by a smiling and praying emoji. Bailly has disapproved of Harry Maguire from day one. Bailly came into the side in 2016 and has represented United 113 times. Bruno Fernandes has made more appearances for United than Bailly and he came in the 2019 January transfer window.

Bailly is the fourth-choice centre-back at the moment. Phil Jones who has only played twice this season is above him. Bailly has only made 7 appearances for the club this season and has done well for himself in a couple of games. However, this season seems likely to be Bailly’s last for United as he is injury prone and cannot play for more than a couple of games before getting injured.

Ralf Rangnick’s thoughts

Ralf Rangnick was unaware of the events. He came to know of the events through a reporter who had asked for his thoughts on the matter. He replied

“I’m not on Instagram”

“Listen, I’m not talking about my players in the press conference not knowing what has happened, it doesn’t make sense. I can only tell you, never in my life will I be part of Instagram,” He added.

“If it’s true what you told me that should not happen in a football club no matter in which league.”

Manchester United are open to show Bailly the exit door in the Summer. However, he will always remain in the supporter’s hearts as an erratic yet passionate defender.
